"Six days with Dan - he inspires me all over again, every time I take one of his classes; and I've taken several in the past 5 years (chairmaking, spoonmaking, and shaving horse classes).

~ Alec Milstein, CA
"Working with Dan is fun and informative. He has very quickly become a friend. His knowledge of wood is amazing - I've taken a few classes from him, and always take home some piece of woodworking knowledge I didn't have before. Also, I can't go home without some of his exotic wood for

"Just smelling a piece of wood gets me started down a road filled with the wonder of creation, old friendships, and the great stories we all share."
~ Dan Stalzer
Dan proudly shares comments from his clientele and links from associations he's been honored to participate in over the years.....
"Always a delight to take Dan's chairmaking class - I've done it so many times, we now have a full set! Can't stay away though; he's become a good friend and his uncanny approach to teaching the right thing at the right moment is pure delight. He's the best at what he does, and if you don't take one of his classes, you're missing out!"
